Summer 2022 Course

HON 300 - Fundamentals of Volunteer Engagement 

Instructor: Alysia Davis
Format: Asynchronous, Virtual

This course will explore the fundamentals of volunteer engagement as a professional practice in the nonprofit and human services setting. Students will identify and analyze emerging trends in volunteerism, and learn how to be effective advocates for volunteer stewardship as a key element of nonprofit sustainability.  The content of this course will follow successive steps in the volunteer engagement “cycle”: Planning and Preparing for Volunteers; Volunteer Recruitment; Volunteer Orientation and Training; Volunteer Supervision and Program Evaluation; and Volunteer Retention and Acknowledgment. Assignments will focus on competencies required for each step. Students are encouraged to keep a particular organization and volunteer position/role in mind through the successive readings and assignments, in order to effectively apply these principles. The fundamental design of the course is based on  learning through critical thought related to leadership and management roles with volunteers.
